Dad's Item Editor Help
I recently reformatted and completely forgot to back up my save file for Divine Divinity I was about 3/4 through the game. I'm ok with restarting the game and going through it, but I dread having to do the loading over and over again to get awesome gear and saw Dad's Item editor, but I can't seem to get it to work.

It extracts and installs with 0 errors, but when i run the DDIE.exe either 1.3 or 1.4 and open item.000 of any savegame it just does nothing. No items show up no message shows up everything stays blank like it was unable to open the file for some reason. I've ran everything as administrator from the extracting, installtion, and running exe and I've redownloaded many times to see if I somehow corrupted it.

To no avail I cannot seem to get it to work and was wondering if anyone has any help to offer me I really don't want to sit reloading for 30 minutes to an hour like I did my first time being a perfectionist with gear is painful in this game lol. Sorry for the long post I hope someone can help me.

Try the Divine Divinity Item Editor[hem.passagen.se] (it doesn't have quite as many options as DAD's item editor[kiya.xanlosch.de] but will do most of what you could want).

Ah yeah that ones pretty good though I wish it could edit charm slots cause thats the main thing I try to reroll for decent stats, but 5 charms mandatory for my end game gear lol. Though i just rolled the most broken Bright blade I've ever seen with 5 frost and 5 stun it seems a bit overpowered and broken and I cant edit out one of the two lol.

I installed DDIE on my new computer (Win7 x64) any was able to open/edit an items.000 file. After extracting the DDIE_zipped.exe file, I ran the setup.exe file in Win98/ME mode (not sure if that was required), then replaced the DDIE.exe file with the 1.4 version.

No still does not work very strange I have no idea why it just does not do anything has anyone used it with the steam version of the game? I also have win 7 x64 so that should not be the issue.
When you open it what does it do exactly maybe im just being stupid and It has nothing to do with the installation and could be I'm using it wrong. After you opent he item.000 does it pop up any message or anything show up?

Ok I solved the issue I have no idea why, but I can only edit the save file if it is not in the steam folder I have to move it to desktop than put it back someone should update the instructions for the steam version.

I tried copying the same save I checked earlier to the folder below, and had the same issue you reported.

C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/divine_divinity/savegames

Even moving the save to the 'common' folder or a different subfolder would allow DAD's Item Editor to open it, though. I didn't have the Steam client running, and have not installed the Steam version of DD on my new computer (since I have the retail anthology I installed it off the DVD, along with the old GOG version and the original disk version).
